Pre-Menstrual Tension


Sometimes called premenstrual tension (PMT), premenstrual syndrome is a collection of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms related to the female menstrual cycle.

Around 80 percent of women of child-bearing age have some symptoms of PMS. More than 200 different symptoms have been identified, but the three most prominent symptoms are irritability, tension, and unhappiness or stress. Bloatedness, cramps, fatigue and acne are also common but the exact symptoms and their intensity vary from woman to woman.

Supporting PMS

There is plenty that can be done to limit the symptoms of PMS naturally.

The first main step is to address the diet. Eating little and often (around every 3 hours) combined with fish oil supplements will keep your blood-sugar stable, controlling mood swings.
